Arizona’s delegation splits on ‘fiscal cliff’ vote

Arizona’s U.S. House delegation split along party lines late Tuesday night as the House passed the so-called “fiscal cliff agreement.

The agreement avoided middle-class tax increases. House approval of the legislation already approved by the Senate sent it to President Barack Obama.

Democrats Ron Barber, Raul Grijalva and Ed Pastor voted for the agreement.

Republicans Jeff Flake, Trent Franks, Paul Gosar, Ben Quayle and David Schweikert voted against it.
